I am going to email quite a few tattoo shops in the coming week and I want to keep myself 1. Out of the spam box and 2. Out of the icy stare of lady law. I want to give my plan for now and if you find something I am doing wrong, and I mean blatantly wrong, feel free to weigh in and let me know. I take criticism extremely well, so bring it.
I am hiring someone to scrape the email addresses, names and websites of tattoo shops in the US. I am going to go in manually checking each for a certain feature (qualifier for what I am selling) and create a 2 lists, one that has the thing I am looking for and the other that does not.
I plan on mailing those that do have the feature an email by importing the mailing list into either a Google doc and doing a mail merge which has a 500 a day cap. Or I am going to add them to Mail Chimp and send them all out. I am worried as I have heard that MC has a track record of having things marked as spam.
As far as the email itself, I understand there are some elements that I have to have. I can't have a deceptive title and I have to have my mailing address but other than that I am clueless.
I am practicing "Just In Time" learning so forgive me for the lack of knowledge but what I have so far has been gathered from long threads.
Have any quick and dirty tips? Something I have missed? Let me know, thanks for reading.
